“Instead of breaking or cherry-picking the rules, many just follow the inner rules, which have been instilled during their lifetime and have subtly permeated their thinking. They value rules, as it offers the ravishment of a securing, ceremonial rhythm in life and it prevents them from breaking free from their cocoon, all the more because freedom can be so scaring and exhausting. ("When forgetting the rules of the game" )”

“His mouth descended upon hers and swallowed up her cry.
She'd been kissed sweetly before, stylized expressions of courtship during some of the dances favored by Queen Mary's court.

'I should be revolted. I should be screaming to get away.'
But then his mouth went suddenly soft and beguiling on hers. Elspeth had never imagined the like.
'How strange, this shared breath, this mingling of souls.”
